Re: Newcastle Quayside taken in the golden hour comments please

Some nice shots, but a minor correction: these aren't "Golden Hour" shots - they were taken after the golden hour. The golden hour is when the sun is low in the sky so that everything is lit with a golden glow, and the warmth/contrast can make for some great shots. Yours are pure sunset shots.

For example, the "Sun Surveyor" app that I have says that for my location tonight, the golden hour starts at 7:37 pm, sunset starts at 8:31 pm, and the "blue hour" (where there's still sunlight but the sun is below the horizon, giving a blue cast) is from 8:42 to 9:17.

As I said, a minor correction.
